Review: Lady Jayne Disappears by Joanna Davidson Politano
Blurb (from Amazon):
When Aurelie Harcourt's father dies in debtor's prison, he leaves her just two things: his wealthy family, whom she has never met, and his famous pen name, Nathaniel Droll. Her new family greets her with apathy and even resentment. Only the quiet houseguest, Silas Rotherham, welcomes her company.
When Aurelie decides to complete her father's unfinished serial novel, writing the family into the story as unflattering characters, she must keep her identity as Nathaniel Droll hidden while searching for the truth about her mother's disappearance--and perhaps even her father's death.
Author Joanna Davidson Politano's stunning debut set in Victorian England will delight readers with its highly original plot, lush setting, vibrant characters, and reluctant romance.
Lady Jayne Disappears is a pretty good read. I found Joanna Davidson Politano's writing style to be unique and refreshing. Aurelia is the main character of the book and I was not sure what I thought of her at first. After a few chapters, she started to grow on me. I did not think that the plot to be predictable and did not expect the twist towards the end.
I enjoyed Lady Jayne Disappears and give it 4 1/2 stars. A good, suspenseful historical.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my honest opinion.
